Three convicted citizens of Ukraine were killed in Kirovska Correctional Colony #33 on the territory of the so-called Donetsk People's Republic. This was announced by the adviser to the head of the Ukrainian delegation in the Trilateral Contact Group Haide Rizayeva, as Ukrinform reports.
"Yes, according to reliable information, three Ukrainian citizens were killed in one of the colonies of the so-called "DPR"on August 6. All of them were convicted before the war and were serving sentences in the uncontrolled territory. It is impossible to say exactly why they were killed. Even if there was a riot inside the colony and clashes over personal relations between the convicts, this should have been prevented," Rizayeva said.
According to her, one of the three killed citizens is a champion of Ukraine, a judoka from Zaporizhzhia Yevhen Sotnykov, previously convicted for killing an 18-year-old boy. The name of another murdered convicted citizen of Ukraine is also known, and nothing is known about the third one.
"The name of another killed convict is Oleksandr Davydov. His relatives who live in Ukraine turned to me with a request to help extradite the body to our territory," she added.
Rizayeva noted that Ukraine cannot control such events taking place in the occupied territories.
Earlier, the Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights Lyudmyla Denisova reported that 405 Ukrainian citizens, including 44 servicemen and 30 women, were in captivity in Russia and ORDLO.
